This wonderfully titled six track CD (with no hidden extras) comes all the way from down under and leaves me wondering whether there’s a Star Wars joke hidden somewhere! Wish play a no nonsense, post grunge, straight ahead alt rock with plenty of energy and intensity. The band’s tactic seems to be to lay down some suitably aggressive chunky guitar over which singer Lincoln Gray’s gruff vocals cut through the speakers! The formula works and my favourites are the slightly off kilter “Flammable Liquid” and the rifforama of “Periwinkle”. Wish are another example of the fact that when it comes to great rock music, American bands may be the most hyped but they’ve not necessarily cornered the market on creativity!
